(11-13-19) Two Shelby County League members will be playing in OHSAA Regional Semifinal football playoff games this weekend.
OHSAA Regional Semifinal at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15
8 Fairview (10-1) vs. 5 Anna (10-1) at Wapakoneta Harmon Field
2 Marion Local (9-2) vs. 3 Fort Loramie (10-1) at St. Mary’s Memorial Roughrider Athletic Complex
The twist to all of this…the SCL does not sponsor football, Anna and Ft. Loramie are the only two in the league that play the game on the gridiron.
Both schools had impressive seasons…Anna won a share of the always tough Midwest Athletic Conference and Ft. Loramie won the outright Cross County Conference championship. Both are football only members of those two conferences, the rest of their athlete teams are members of the SCL.
This week in Samuel Houseworth’s OHSAA HS FB Projections he says –
Anna went from being slightly the odds-on favorite to a 5-in-6 favorite after stomping the best competition they will see all month. Fairview is the 3rd best team remaining in D-VI and the Rockets are -still- 3-touchdown favorites this coming weekend.
…about Ft. Loramie
The de facto state championship will take place in St. Marys where Fort Loramie and Marion Local will square off this weekend. There is about a 4-in-5 chance that the state champion comes from this game. So, if you don’t want to drive to Canton for a state championship, just head to Auglaize County this weekend for the next best thing.

Despite not having football as a conference sport the Shelby County League is shining very bright this weekend. Two teams advancing to the 2nd round that is impressive.
